SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The results continue to come in from Tuesday’s Senate runoffs in Georgia.

The Secretary of State’s Office is gearing up for another busy day as America waits to see which party will control the U.S. Senate. They say more than 4 million ballots were cast, making this a record-breaking runoff election.

After working long shifts on Election Day, election workers will be back at it Wednesday morning trying to finish the results.

The polls closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday night. Since then, Georgians and pretty much the rest of America have been watching the results closely.

Election leaders spoke Tuesday saying they were pleased with how the runoffs took place. Of course, it wasn’t perfect. Locally, we did see a few problems in Chatham County. Two polling locations were given permission to stay open a little later than the others due to a late start. Election leaders say it was because of some technical issues. But there were also some issues in the Atlanta area.

Wednesday morning, election workers across the state will continue processing any remaining ballots. The Secretary of State’s Office is asking Georgians to be patient and kind as we get closer and closer to the official results.
